YouTube service down: Video-streaming website suffers global outage

KARACHI: The world's largest video-streaming site, YouTube suffered rear global outage in wee hours on Wednesday.

The Google-owned company, which has billions of monthly active users, began suffering issues globally early on Wednesday.

Soon after  the problems occurred, YouTube posted a message on Twitter acknowledging the issue and apologizing to its users for the blackout: 

“Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. We’re working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated.”

The problem comes just hours after Twitter started sending out nonsensical notifications to many of its users, though that’s now been sorted out. Indeed, Twitter is the very place, of course, where YouTube fans are now heading to sound off about the outage.


YouTube has suffered few outages as serious as this one in its 13-year history. We’ve reached out to YouTube and Google for a comment on what’s going on, and will let you know if they get back.
